New UMID Mbook Model Promised For IDF; In US By End Of 2009

It comes as no surprise that UMID are delivering the first look at their second-generation mbook MID at next week's IDF – after all, they revealed those plans back in August – but the big news is that they're promising a US launch for the new device by the end of the year.  That could mean the UMID M2 discussed back in February.

The M2 was said to have a sub-3-inch display, HSPA and WiMAX, together with supporting VoIP.  However, other documents suggested that UMID were planning a model with a fully-rotating display that could fold all the way round for in-car PND use; that might be an upgraded version of the existing mbook M1.
